Dave and Ellen's place was so centrally located to everything in the old town of Edinburgh. They were great hostess and even provided breakfast fixings.

Location was amazing. Dave and Ellen were amazing hosts and help us a lot in everything. We really recommend it!

Very conveniently located in the Royal Mile. Dave offered very useful tips which came in very handy. We did not get to see Dave and Ellen much as we were out a lot sightseeing and celebrating Saracens' rugby success.

As everyone mentioned the location right at the castle is awesome. The street is very touristy, but we were out and about all day anyway. The food they had for our breakfast was really nice, and much appreciated!
